If Judge (April 30, Backbooth) could be seen as the avenging ghosts of hardcore past, a convincing case can be made that Barcelona’s Ultra are the ghosts of hardcore yet to come. The youthful Spanish contingent combines members of Absurdo and Anarquia Vertical into a combustible whole, merging elements of Euro and U.S. hardcore into a new form of world-spanning violence. Ultra’s recent 7-inch release on the untouchable La Vida Es Un Mus label out of the U.K. is almost foaming at the mouth in terms of fury and velocity: seven berserker songs bursting forth from a 45-rpm single – just like how Agnostic Front and Negative Approach used to do it. Flammable materials; handle with care. One of only two Florida shows for Ultra, with support from South Floridian Latinx firebrands Ladrón.
